That's the way I usually play it. Ain't it the way it works though? Record a movie off of TCM and your recording will look better than a copy on vhs bought in a store. But there's that damn watermark!

You think maybe that's why they call it a watermark? Because some company weeweed on a movie?

Most probable. We in Arizona call it a "bug" but water mark is good too.

The watermarks or logos can be covered up using AviSynth and VirtualDub.

Do those change the rights status too?

I would think so because if the logo is obscured then the trademark holder can't claim infringement on something that isn't there. Just my opinion of course.

Not if the film wasn't "theirs" to begin with.
